Khalsa Panth

Khalsa Panth believes in the system of governance by divine guidance. Khalsa Panth refers to the people who have taken the way of the Khalsa. The word Khalsa means pure. A person becomes Khalsa after becoming an amritdhari (i.e. after drinking from the trough of Amrit).

History of Khalsa Panth

God founded Akaal Purakh ki Fauj and Guru Nanak Dev Ji introduced it. Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji organized it. On Vaisakhi 1699, Guru Gobind Singh Ji launched Khalsa Panth. Khalsa Panth was established with a motive of saving the Hindu people from the oppression of the Mughal emperors. With the martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, his son Gobind Rai (Guru Gobind Singh Ji) succeeded his father as the next Guru. To fight against Mughal oppression, he established a new religious order. This was the foundation of entirely new sect in Sikhism-the formation of "Khalsa Panth".

Codes of Conduct

Credos to be followed are - Naam Japna (to recite the name of God), Kirat Karna (earn honestly to earn livelihood) and Vand Chakna (to eat after distributing). The Akaal Purakh Ki Fauj comprised of the people who have vowed to sacrifice their lives for the benefit of people and committed them to Sikhism by Amrit Chakna (ceremonial drinking from contents of the amrit trough). These people are also given Flag (Nishaan Sahib) and they live with the motto Deg Tegh Fateh (Deg represents food and Tegh refers to Sword, it means victory in providing food and protection to poor and needy).

Five K's of Khalsa

A baptized Sikh is required to wear five K's. These include Kesh (uncut hair), Kangha (wooden comb), Karra (steel bracelet), Kachha (short breeches) and Kirpaan (blade).
